These lip balm holders were actually crafted as favors for a birthday party, but I thought that they would also make pretty cute shower gifts or a lovely addition to a bag of must-haves for your bridesmaids!
2 colors of cardstock
1 patterned paper
1 3/8” circle punch
1 1/4” circle punch
Lip balm (mine was crafted and personalize by this esty store) or buy any over the counter lip balm and create your own labels.
Instructions See template below for drawing instruction (The copyright for the template goes to Renne Ondrajka)
For the Outside piece a) Cut a piece of cardstock by 3 1/2” x 5 3/4” b) Score it at 2 1/2” and 3 1/4” (the center piece will be 3/4” wide)
For the inside holder piece
a) Cut a piece of cardstock by 3 1/2” x 5 3/4”
b) Score it at 2 1/2” and 3 1/4” (the center piece will be 3/4” wide)
c) With an x-acto knife, cut 3 different slices as we can see on the template link. These cuts will serve to insert the lip balm inside the pocket.
Decorate the exterior pocket as desired with a pattern paper, stamps or anything else you’d like. A quick note…before you glue the pattern paper on the outside cardstock piece, put a piece of ribbon between the two pieces.
Insert the lip balm inside the pocket and tie the ribbon. Voilà !
